What Constitutes A Dental Emergency?

Any dental incident that needs urgent attention in order to save your teeth, manage bleeding or manage oral pain is considered a dental emergency.

Here are some tips from our emergency dentist, on how to manage a dental emergency until you can get professional help.

Your tooth has been knocked out

A tooth that is knocked out should be tended to immediately. Sometimes, if you act quickly, you can save the tooth and have it reinserted.

Pick up the tooth on the crown and be careful not to touch the roots. Then rinse the tooth to clean it, without removing any attached tissue. If it is possible, try to put your tooth back into the socket. Position it carefully and then bite down to push it in. if this does not work place the tooth in a cup of milk and try to get to your emergency dentist as quickly as you can.

Fractured or chipped tooth

If your tooth has chipped and is not painful then it probably isn’t an emergency. Try to get to your dentist as soon as possible.

If your tooth is fractured or cracked it requires more urgent attention. Cracks and fractures could mean that there is damage to the interior of the tooth as well. Call your dentist immediately and then rinse your mouth gently with water. Do not administer any painkillers directly onto your gums as this can damage the gum tissue.

Your emergency dentist will need to take an x-ray to see the extent of the damage. In the event that the pulp of the tooth has been damaged, you may need a root canal treatment.

Misaligned or loose teeth

Loose or misaligned teeth should be checked by a dentist immediately. If a tooth has loosened, try to push it back into place with very little pressure. Call your dentist straight away.

Oral pain

Any damage or injury to the tissues in your mouth are considered dental emergencies and need to be tended to by your dentist. Clean your mouth gently with warm water and place gauze over the areas that are bleeding.

If you have lost a crown or a filling it is probably not a dental emergency but you should see your dentist in Epping as soon as possible.

If you experience
● Bleeding from your mouth
● Trauma to your face or mouth
● Severe pain
● Swelling or bulges in your gums or face

Frequently Asked Questions

What should I do if I have a broken tooth?

Your tooth may break due to extreme circumstances. If you have a broken or chipped tooth and feel discomfort, it’s essential to see your emergency dentist Epping to get a proper solution. It’s recommended to visit your dentist even if there is no pain or discomfort. When your tooth is broken, the internal and delicate areas of the tooth may be exposed to the bacteria in the mouth. This leads to tooth decay and results in tooth loss. If your tooth is completely knocked out, visit your emergency dentist within 30 minutes to get it re-implanted.
